    Haven't had a chance to listen to it yet. On the plus side, if it ends up blowing chunks I have no idea when I bought it or how much I paid for it so it'll be kinda like free garbage. :relaxed: If it sounds good, I'll be rewarded for the time I spent pawing through the stash when I found it.

    You might like them, give em a chance. Siemens tubes were incredible sounding on my Lyr 2, but they were too bright with my current gear so I sold them all.

    Rolled in those Bugle Boy Holland ECC88 58' D Getters last night, and damn those are some killer tubes. I am still burning them in, but man the inner detail, is insane. I am hearing things I have not heard with the Brimar CV2492, without any harshness. The bass, mids and highs are all there working perfectly together, with a huge soundstage and great dynamics. This tube is staying in the LP for a good while. I was lucky enough to get 3 pairs for under $100 total, and could not be happier. Thanks to all who recommended them!

    I`d advise passing on this, paid $200 for a pair of these from him, both were noisy/microphonic and 1 tube tested 1,800-1,350. 1,350 is minimum. The bad testing tube was advertised as 2,200-2,300.

    That's why I don't do business, with that guy! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: I think he might have been a good seller in the old days, but I consistently see crap from him, as of the last 2 years.

    This is testing from the ad.

    TUBE 1 - Ia 9.5/9.8 gm 2.1/2.2

    TUBE 2 - Ia 9.8/9.5 gm 2.2/2.2

    100% = Ia 10.5 gm 2.2

    I got 2,250-2,200 2,100-2,260. Fantastic honest seller.

    I have seen a few of those lately and was wondering what they sound like myself. I know they make good stuff.

    Can't remember who it was not too long ago that said a good, quiet 6DJ8 sounded better than a 6922 of the same lineage, but he must have been a pretty cool guy. :slight_smile:

    I have an assortment of 6DJ8's on the way, some from Germany, some from Holland, some US made. It will be fun to check out some different tubes. I may get a couple more !2AU7's down the road as well.
